When it comes to celebrity babies, parents seem to love to keep names under wraps. Superstar, Rihanna, gave birth to her handsome baby boy with boyfriend A$AP Rocky, almost a year ago. The boy’s name has not been revealed, until now. The name revelation comes as Rihanna and Rocky patiently await their second baby.
According to a birth certificate obtained by Daily Mail, the couple have named their newborn son, RZA Athelston Mayers. The name, RZA, is said to honor rapper and producer, RZA, leader of the Wu-Tang Clan. Many fans speculated that Rihanna would have named her son something of the sort. She has been spotted wearing several articles of clothing repping Wu-Tang since giving birth.
Celebs have a track record of naming their children unique names. In the words of Future, “You do what you want when you’re popping.” That sentiment also apparently applies when you have loads of money.
Gucci Mane and Keyshia Ka’oir named their second child, Iceland. Their daughter’s name is similar to that of her older brother, Ice.
Keke Palmer is another celebrity who has named her child something out of the ordinary. As opposed to Rihanna, Keke didn’t hesitate to share her son’s name doing so fairly quickly after his birth. Palmer, and the child’s father decided on, Leodis Andrellton Jackson, or Leo for short.
“Born during Black History Month, with a name to match,” she wrote in a caption on social media.
Back in January, Kylie Jenner revealed the name of her baby boy with Travis Scott. In a similar fashion to Rihanna, Kylie didn’t give fans a name until about a year after he was born. Jenner also revealed that Aire was in fact, their second name choice. Jenner and Scott originally named their son Wolf but eventually decided against that choice.
“We just really didn’t feel like it was him,” Jenner explained.
